Hands on Minds On Year 4 Inquiry

By Nicole Fann, 4F PYP Classroom Teacher

We know our students learn in many different ways: visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, and social. Hands-on learning engagements obviously engage kids who are tactile or kinesthetic learners, who need movement to learn best. They also engage students who are auditory learners, who talk about what they're doing, and visual learners, who have the opportunity to see what everyone else is creating. For social learners, the time spent in small group conversation will strengthen their knowledge.
